  • The car has a little rust but nothing major - it's really an honest car that has spent it's entire life in Alabama. The floor pans are original and has a few spots on the rear passenger side nothing alarming. The worst rust is in the bottom of the drivers door and base of the pillar. it will eventually need to be repaired. the heather channels are solid on the inside just a few spots on the outside. It has surface rust on the pan and bottom it's as I got it after sitting since 1997. It will need to be cleaned and coated. For an unrestored driver the car is in great shape.
